Counter-Terrorists, commonly abbreviated as CTs, are one of the two forces featured in the Counter-Strike series. They are often perceived as the "good guys" or "protagonists", opposite of the bad guys, the Terrorists.
Winning conditions vary for each scenario although the Counter-Terrorists will prevail if all Terrorists are eliminated (unless the bomb detonates before it can be defused, in the case of defusal mode).
- Prevent the Terrorists from planting the bomb. If executed, it must be disarmed before it explodes.
- Either eliminate all of the Terrorists before they can reach the terrorist escape zone or prevent them from achieving their goal until the time runs out.
Counter-Terrorists are capable of using all equipment available in the Counter-Strike series, besides the C4. These are the equipment and weapons exclusive to the Counter-Terrorists:
- Defusal kit
- Rescue kit
- P2000 (CS:GO)
- ES Five-seven
- MAG-7 (CS:GO)
- Schmidt Machine Pistol
- MP9 (CS:GO)
- Tactical Shield
- Clarion 5.56
- Maverick M4A1 Carbine
- M4A4 (CS:GO)
- Krieg 550 Commando
- SCAR-20 (CS:GO)
- Incendiary grenade (CS:GO)
All Counter-Terrorist agencies depicted are based on real life counterparts.
